The Weekend Winner is a weekly update here on Caught on Set. Every Monday we will post pictures from the set of the movie that wins the box office battle over the weekend.
This weekend at the box office had a little bit of a surprise at the top. I don't think anyone was surprised by which movie earned the top spit, but rather how much it earned. Hotel Transylvania was the big winner bringing in over $40 million. A new record for the last weekend of September. From BoxOfficeMojo.com:
1 Hotel Transylvania $43,000,000
2 Looper $21,200,000
3 End of Watch $8,000,000
4 Trouble With the Curve $7,530,000
5 House At the End of the Street $7,154,000

That is quite a bit of money. Especially when you look at how poor ticket sales have been lately. It just goes to show that you can't go wrong with an animated movie that appeals to children as well as adults. I'm about to go watch Hotel in theaters and I don't even have any kids.

Kevin James, Sara Underwood and Ray Romano
Sara Jean Underwood shared a few twitpics of her and some friends hanging out with comedians Kevin James and Ray Romano. They ladies appear to be really excited to meet the two funny men.

That's kind of strange that that group would be excited to meet the two actors. It's not that Kevin James and Ray Romano aren't famous and have a couple of great careers, but the girls seem a little young. I couldn't imagine many of those females watching Everybody Loves Raymond. Maybe they're just older than I think they are.

Jim Carrey, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Linda Booth and Robert Emms
On September 21st Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Jim Carrey, Linda Booth, Robert Emms and the rest of the crew were spotted on the set of Kick Ass 2 filming on location in Toronto, Canada. I don't like to be redundant, but they all look pretty kick ass.

I guess I could have said they were looking bad ass. That way it wouldn't have been weird for everyone to have to read that sentence. Damn you me! You've let me down for the last time. I have to go now and I'll be back tomorrow. At least I hope so since after all of this crap I might be too beat up to even look at a computer.

Maria Menounos was caught mid yawn while filming a segment for Extra! last week. Menounos was looking as gorgeous as ever in a form fitting dress.

I wonder what made her so tired? It sure isn't her practicing and appearing on the newest season of Dancing With The Stars. I know she didn't win on her season, but how is she not an All-Star? She is an All-Star beauty, that should have gotten her on the show by itself.

Carmen Electra is caught doing what she does best. Looking sexy in a swimsuit. I wonder if she practices much. or if it just comes natural for her?

How long has she been doing this? It seems like she should look so much older than she currently does. I guess she just has great genes. (wow, we have made some amazing strides in medicine in the last decade.

I love Audrey. She is so beautiful and talented. Amelie was great and she really made that movie. The Da Vinci Code was entertaining. But the movie she appears in that is my favorite is L'Auberge Espagnole. I know she doesn't play a huge part in the movie, but it was set and shot in and around Barcelona. I love anything that has to do with Barcelona. It's my favorite city in the whole world.

I have to admit that I have never been much of comic book fan and I have never read any of these books either. I did watch the first movie though and I liked it. Chloe Grace Moretz was freaking awesome in her role and I even liked Nic Cage's performance. I liked the first one so much that I would have read all the books if I had the time.
